Yeah I kinda figured the worn bushing would start knocking on the top end before it completely failed which would be a fair warning that it needed to be replaced.
But like I said I have no experience with bushings in these engines so I can't swear to anything concerning how they are/were, I figured they got away from them because they had a very short life in these engines and were causing loads of failures
